Do you know your Bible? Do you know why you believe what you believe? I fear sometimes that our lack of effectiveness in winning this world to Christ is that those of us who are supposed to be the next generation of preachers really don’t know our Bibles that well. This results not only in a lack of effectiveness but also in diversion to apostasy. The average young man does not spend time studying his Bible. You may read your Bible, but do you study it. Have you ever read a verse in your quiet time that warranted study? Have you ever taken out the old Webster’s 1828 and looked up the meanings of the words you read in God’s Word? It is the obligation of Christians as a whole, let alone preachers, to study the Word of God. My friend do not just sit to ingest the Word by quantities of chapters, but rather sit with God’s Word and savour the content in sweet study. This Book is the Tool of our profession, learn it well so that you can use it often.
Do you know the Book? Can you answer these questions with a chapter and verse?

It seems as if it is becoming a regular occurrence to see youth marching the streets in some American city protesting anything from raising the minimum wage to trying to oust a university president. On the surface, every cause seems to have a valid point in the view of the modern day politically correct society. Sadly, the news media enables these youth by interviewing them and constantly covering their rebellion.
“Give me 100 preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God; such alone will shake the gates of hell.” -John Wesley
